Saucony Triumph 22

Saucony Triumph 22 Performance Review

Annie: Part of what I love about teaming up with Drew on running shoe reviews lies in how comically different we are (read: Drew is 6’6” and objectively fast; I am 5’0” and….optimistic). We haven’t conferred before combining our thoughts on the Saucony Triumph 22 in this review, so I’ll be very, very intrigued by where our opinions align and where they don’t. Because even after about 50 miles of testing, I still find the Triumph 22 to be a bit of a head scratcher.

The Endorphins 4: Saucony Endorphin Speed 4 and Pro 4 Review

Why is your friendly neighborhood shoe reviewer tackling two shoes at the same time? Because the Saucony Endorphin Speed 4 and Saucony Endorphin Pro 4 are the two most complementary shoes on the market. Yes, other brands try to match the look and feel of their speed shoe/super trainer/daily trainer to their race day shoe but no one has done it quite so well. 
Saucony Kinvara Pro

Saucony Freedom Crossport

Saucony Freedom Crossport Performance Review

There’s never been a better time to look for your perfect training shoe – from the Reebok Nano X3 to the Under Armour Project Rock 5 to the RAD One, there’s a training shoe for everyone. Now the Saucony Freedom Crossport offers something different from an elite running brand that’s not well-known in the cross training space.

Saucony Endorphin Speed 3

Saucony Endorphin Speed 3 Performance Review

The original Saucony Endorphin Speed was a 2020 shoe of the year candidate and championed by some reviewers as Saucony’s best shoe ever. While I wouldn’t go that far, I did think the original Endorphin Speed was a very good shoe. The second iteration was basically the same shoe so I didn’t even take the time to write a full review. However, the Saucony Endorphin Speed 3 tweaks the winning formula to create the best Endorphin Speed yet. It’s so good it made these lists: Best Running Shoes, Best for

History of Saucony


The story of Saucony is actually a story of two companies. The first was founded in Kutztown, PA where 4 businessmen opened a shoe factory by Sacony creek. The second began in Cambridge, MA in 1910, under the name of Hyde Athletic Industries.

Hyde was founded by a Russian immigrant and specialized in athletic footwear. Over the years they began to gain notoriety especially thanks to two of the its brands, SpotBilt and PF Flyers. By the 1960s, Hyde had become a successful footwear brand and would end up buying and relocating Saucony to Massachusetts.

Saucony quickly became Hyde’s most popular brand thanks to its innovations in running footwear. By 1979, Saucony was considered to be an elite running shoe, much like Seattle based Brooks. Two of the brands models had been selected in the top 10 by Runner’s World magazine and the demand for the product had never been higher.

In the late 1980s Saucony had become Hyde’s dominant brand, and Hyde decided to change the company name to Saucony.

Saucony’s shoe boxes traditionally had the phrase “sock a knee” printed on them, which is the correct pronunciation of the company name and the logo represents the creek and the and the boulders that line it.
